4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
First beer poured for my 28th birthday. What better way to reward yourself for making it another year on this planet than with Cantillon? Vigneronne pours a hazy golden orange, with a fingers of soapy looking white head. Nose is all muscat grapes and it is spectacular....probably the highlight of the beer for me. White wine and grape skin with some hints of lemon and just the slightest acetobacter. Muscat/white wine grapes arent as prominent in the flavor, but they are still one of the main themes. It’s focused particularly on the grape skin and lemony lactic acidtity. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is low to moderate, good sharp acidity, and a moderate finish. Another great fruit lambic from Cantillon. Having had this a few times, I think I actually prefer it aged as opposed to fresh. It loses some of the gentle grape character as it ages, but it becomes incredibly more sour.

2006 bottle. Aroma of barnyard, a lot of funk, also very prominent acidity, almost vinegar like. Taste is not that fruity, but you can get out some citrus, very much so lemon, it feels like a geuze with added sourness or lemon. It’s very very sour, close to vinegar level, and too much for me, and very intense, with a lot of funk.

Une carambole sur l’ecstasy me ravage l’espace bucale au départ mais finit par s’adoucir et devenir plus que cohérent. Des notes vivement vertes et herbacés accompagnent superbement le côté raisin. Acétique et surette bien ancrés.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
October 2013 bottling poured a deep golden color wit a coating of white foam that fell back to a ring on the glass. Aroma has a nice funky geuze, white grape, grape skins, house Cantillon funk, and mid range acidity. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation is in the lower range. Flavor shows some acidity but it is under control and balanced by the house funk. White grape plays in but adds surprisingly little sweetness though it helps to balance the whole thing.

Bottle, 2014. Pours a pale gold with a quickly receding head. Aroma is classic Cantillon barnyard with fruity white grapes. Definite white grape sweetness and moderate (per Cantillon standards) buggy sourness. A very appochable lambic when drank fresh.

Alla spina al Red Bear Pub di Marghera. Schiuma lievissima, colore giallo ambrato opalescente, aroma acetico, floreale , vinoso, al palato corpo medio e bassa carbonazione, una complessa esplosione di sapori avviluppa tutte le papille gustative in un mélange di asprezza non eccessiva seguita dalla dolcezza dei malti con note di limone, vino, qualcosa di floreale, con un finale lungo e molto soddisfacente. Mi è piaciuta e spero di assaggiarla ancora.
